    Today a lady gave me a School House Regulator clock, that she was going to throw out. A freebee. I thought it was a quartz movement because it is powered by a "D" cell batter, but when I opened it up, I saw a mechanical movement. It also had two hammers and strike rods. I assume it is a bim bam strike movement. Any way the information I was able to get off the movement was --- Rhythm Watch Co, no (0) jewels, unadjusted, Japan. The movement is very oily. I have no idea on how to check or repair this movement. Also, do any of you know where I can purchase a replacement movement. Thanks for your help.

    You won't find a 'like for like' replacement. I use quite a few P-647WP movements from Merritt's for similar clocks. It's pricey and sometimes a little to wide for some clocks but it's as close as you will get to your old movement.
    Be sure to check all the measurements before you order.
